And please do not compare him to Charles Haley because Haley was a beast and a game changer. We lost to Dallas because he left. Teams changed their game plans because of Haley.
Aldon is not even close to him and with the troubles in front of him, he will be suspended and soon be forgotten from NFL. I hope I am wrong
Aldon is having a great year. He is on pace to surpass last year sac total yet he is worse off. He is doing stuff this year he didn't have to last year. So if you see him struggle in coverage you can't make the claim he is worse off than last year.
He is just learning a new position. His pass rush is off because he has to watch for runs now and cover. A couple of posters predicted this earlier in the thread.
Once he gets the position down he's be elite. We might need to stay in that nickle against big time passing teams though.
